Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I haven't had ear discomfort since I was a child, but I my ear began to ache the other night and woke me up.

I put a drop of Basil essential oil on my palm, rubbed the cotton ball in the oil, then repeated the process with Melrose essential oil. I put the oiled cotton in my ear.

I rubbed the remaining oil on my palm around my ear. Within an few hours I was able to sleep and the ear discomfort was almost gone in the morning.

I have done the same with my children as soon as they say their ears hurt. Melrose is a bit stronger and they say it burns their ear, so I add a drop of olive oil to dilute it. Goodbye ear discomfort!
